THE STORY:

Somaly Mam Foundation wrote -

To kick off US National Human Trafficking Awareness Month and a brand-new year, make a stand to fight human trafficking by running or walking a virtual race on New Year's Day and help raise funds for the Somaly Mam Foundation. 

What is the Virtual Race? 
- it's a footrace (or walk) without the set course: you determine where and when (on New Years Day). Race other anti-trafficking activists for best time, and compete for most funds raised for SMF. 

How do I register? 
1. join the SMF team here on crowdrise;
2. register for the race on the race site, and pay the $25 registration fee to get an official tshirt in the mail;
3. take an Instagram photo of yourself in the shirt, and tell us why you're running in the caption. Tag it: #whyirun #virtualraceSMF and tag @SMFSomalyMam in the photo. 
On race day, we'll share images from around the world, and make a New Years resolution to fight sex trafficking and modern slavery, year-round. 
 

GRAND PRIZE: The runner who raises the most funds for SMF wins a Skype call with actors, activists, and SMF supporters AnnaLynne McCord and Shay Mitchell, to talk about taking action in the fight to end slavery! 

Shay and AnnaLynne have also pledged to run their own virtual 5K race on New Year's Day. 

If you can't do the walk/run on New Year's Day, do it in the month of January to qualify for the prize. If you do the walk/run on New Year's Day, you will be able to upload your time and be listed with other participants on the final results.  

Funds raised by the SMF team will directly benefit the organization. GO TEAM SOMALY!
